While on their way to Daybreak Town for the next Pokémon Contest, Ash and Dawn decide to have a practice battle. When Ash's Monferno accidentally dug up a buried treasure chest. Meanwhile, the treasure chest gang (which is really a disguised Team Rocket) shows up, attempting to steal the chest Ash holds. They soon reveal themselves to them, but before they could steal the chest, Ash then commands Pikachu to use Thunderbolt which sends Team Rocket blasting off. When they land, James remembered that he used to own the treasure chest, the team agrees to retrieve the item again. Ash and his friends make their way when suddenly Team Rocket shows up once more and tries to tell them that the treasure chest were once James' belongings back in his youth.
Ash and his friends are not convinced, and Brock, saying that if the chest really belongs to James, he should be able to open it. James accepts the challenge and tries a variety of attempts and passwords to open the chest. But after trying thrice incorrectly, a red light suddenly glows in the box's security system screen and when they think that they can open the box, a cannon suddenly came out of the box's upper cover. James tells them that the security system activates when you get three wrong answers. He tells them to run but only to be blasted off by a laser fired by the cannon. Ash and his friends find themselves in a mansion, opened up by automatic gates. A butler came running to get the chest and revealed that the chest belongs to Master James, the James of Team Rocket, proving this by an art of James' pet, Growlie, below the chest. Dawn asks if the James the butler was looking was the same James from Team Rocket, Ash and Brock tells Dawn that James is from a rich family. James, seeing this, predicts an upcoming disaster if he were to be found by his butler, Sebastian. Sebastian then wiould call his mother and father along with Jessiebelle. James come up with the plan of retrieving the treasure chest once more without being discovered by his butler Sebastian. Dawn wonders why James joined Team Rocket at the first place, Brock replied that maybe James was looking for his freedom.
Sebastian offer a meal to Ash and his friends for finding master James' treasure chest. But before Sebastian were to ask them where they found the chest, Jessiebelle (a disguised Jessie), along with her companions (a disguised James and Meowth) arrived at the mansion. When Ash and his friends finds out, Ash says that the name sounds familiar to him, Brock remembered that she is James' fiancée. The disguised Jessie told Sebastian that James ask her to get the treasure chest back for him and that James has returned. The disguised Meowth commands Ash to return the treasure chest, but before they could return back the chest, Growlie suddenly appeared and figured out James' scent. Growlie jump toward the disguised James and unravel his true identity which surprises everyone. But then, Sebastian brought out his Spinarak and commands it to use String Shot at James for him to be handed over to his father. James took out his Mime Jr. and commands it to use Teeter Dance, he presses a button in a wall for Sebastian and Spinarak to fall through a trap. James explains them why he wants to retrieve the chest. He told them that it happens when he was very young, when he met Jessiebelle and that she was his first love, he wrote a letter saying that he wants to marry Jessiebelle. He is embarassed if someone read the letter before her, when suddenly his parents was standing beside him, his parents present him a gift that is the treasure chest and his father made it himself. His mother told him that he was invited in Jessiebelle's house that night and to tell her what he truly feels for her. Then he places the letter inside the chest so that no one but Jessiebelle can read the letter, when he was about to give the chest, Jessiebelle already knew what he's planning to do and decides to marry him. But when Jessiebelle requested James to replace Growlie with a Skitty, he then refuse and decides to cut off their wedding, James found out how selfish Jessiebelle was, he doesn't want to marry Jessiebelle inexchange of his best friend. He commands Growlie to use dig and bury his treasure chest. Later, they found out that Jessiebelle is making her way into James' mansion. Jessiebelle commands her guards to guard the mansion so that James cannot escape. When Jessiebelle entered the mansion, she was welcomed by Sebastian and lead her to a secret passageway connected to an underground tunnel the mansion. Ash and his friends along with Team Rocket, trying to escape using the underground secret passageway, was later being found out by Jessiebelle and Sebastian. When they succesfully come out of the tunnel, Jessiebelle and Sebastian was trapped inside, Ash and his friends places tons of big rocks at the exit so that they can't follow up to James.
James, Jessie and Meowth attempt to guess the password but they got it all wrong, the chest transforms into a robot that fires a beam but they were saved by Growlie. James told Growlie to use Flamethrower to break the chest, but the robot, apparently unaffected, then transformed into a smaller one and fired a missile that hit Growlie. When the robot fired another two missiles, Growlie dodges them all then uses Dig, damaging the chest robot. James commanded Growlie to use Flamethrower, this time hitting the treasure chest, the chest returns to its normal form and then transforms into a rocketship, the rocketship chest flies up into the sky, never to return again. Back inside the tunnel, Jessiebelle commands her Vileplume to use SolarBeam, and the attack opens the exit, blasting both Ash and Brock in the process. Jessiebelle told them that the wedding ceremony was fixed and his father and mother are there too. James comes up with a plan, he tells the gang that he needs Ash's Pikachu to use Thunderbolt on them so he can escape Jessiebelle.
Ash agrees with his plan and Pikachu uses its Thunderbolt on Team Rocket, which sends them blasting off. James and Meowth were surprised when they saw that Jessiebelle was with them and not Jessie, Jessie was the one left and Jessiebelles' guards mistook Jessie as Jessiebelle. Ash and his friends then make their way towards the next city, while James and Meowth are being chased off by Jessiebelle.
- In James's mansion, the trio are sitting in couches discussing how James got into Team Rocket. In the first "clip", the wall behind Brock has a drawer up against it. In the next "clip", (at a different angle) the pattern on the wall has changed, and the drawer is gone.
